“When ‘tasted’ deeply, life itself is more genuine, less guarded,” writes Bonnie Myotai Treace in her review of William Scott Wilson’s “The One Taste of Truth: Zen and the Art of Drinking Tea,” from our May magazine.
One person who understands that is Jesse Jacobs, the owner of Samovar, a San Francisco tea lounge previously profiled in our magazine. Samovar is dedicated to educating people about tea and tea culture. In this video, Jacobs and Zen Habits‘ Leo Babauta introduce the Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Tea, a series of exclusive educational web videos.
